Yogyakarta – Taken from the Hisab data of Tim Ahli Hisab Pimpinan Pusat Muhammadiyah (Ahlul Hisab Team of Muhammadiyah Central Executive), which is led by The Vice-Leader of Tarjih and Tajdid Council of Muhammadiyah Central Executive, Oman Fathurohman stated that there will only be two differences for the initial determination of Syawal or Iedul Fitri for the next 10 years.
According to Oman, the small difference of Syawal determination will be followed by the start of Ramadhan, which there will only be two differences in its arrangement although it will only be the year. The difference for the start of Syawal will only happen in 2019 and 2023 or 1440 and 1444 Hijriah. On the other hand, for Ramadhan, it will happen in 2018 and 2024 or 1439 and 1445 Hijriah.
However, Oman continued, the differences and similarities of Ramadhan determination will depend on Muhammadiyah and the Government consistencies in placing its calculation. “The possibilities of similarities and differences previously mentioned depend on the calculation currently used by Muhammadiyah and the Government, if later the Government or Muhammadiyah change their calculation base, the calculation will also change,” he said in Muhammadiyah Central Executive of Yogyakarta, on Friday (7/18).
